Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

Really? This Enjoy Life, Enjoy God has nothing to do with Black Friday. It has everything to do with discipleship.

Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.
                                                           --Matthew 4:23 TNIV

What's your focus today? Tomorrow? The next day? Notice that over and over, Jesus was teaching, proclaiming, healing. Part of discipleship is knowing and living one's focus. It's not that we cannot have fun, or that diversity may not enrich our lives, but it IS knowing what we're about and not about.

Christ-centered living is not an after-thought, or an issue of what's left after all the other stuff I've done. Christ-centered living is a matter of focus. What if we were to identify three things our life was to focus on today, tomorrow and the next day? Then live accordingly.
